Library Book Leads to Lucrative Career

Link to November 3 Charlotte Observer article, "Stay-at-home mom turns outlet into career".

Excerpt: Maria Headrick didn't plan to become an artist. When she was a stay-at-home mom with two children, she needed to do something for a creative outlet.

"I got a book out of the library on mosaics and it appealed to me," Headrick said. "I started small, with gifts. Then I had so many pieces I had to start selling them because my garage got full."

She doesn't have that problem any more. Ten years later, Headrick's work is so popular, she has trouble keeping a large enough inventory on hand to show customers what her work looks like
